I am thinking of putting up some similar ones but don't want to be filling them every day
Also if you can post a mild plan / material list and where you got
Lloyd the fittings are from my mates farm from when he was doing some drainage work, the main pipe is 10" with a 6" reducer a plate in the bottom with drainage holes the lid is cut out of sheet ally bent round a ply circle. I went for the lager dia pipe for the same reason so im not filling every day and the lager size night be better for trying /experimenting with other food stuffs
It's looking like it's a secret Bob, tell you what pal I'll give you a hand and we'll set em at different heights and see which get used most . You can also set the camera's to see exactly who's eating what for confirmation
Looking that way pal aint it
and thanks for the offer . I thought I would certainly get some answers from the professionals on here or people who use them but as usual looks like I will have to find out for myself.
The feeders arnt for enticing deer to shoot over I don't need them for that, they are mainly for diversionary/ supplementary winter feeding to try and reduce reds bark stripping or trashing the wood and newly planted saplings.
Also it would be good to see if it improves the quality of the animals in general, more of an experiment really all I really wanted a guide to what height to set them at.
